19th Residential Vedanta Course

Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda conceived the idea of a ‘modern day Gurukula’, to impart the knowledge of Advaita Vedanta to young men and women, who would imbibe the wisdom and then share it with the world at large. For this purpose, he established the Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, in Mumbai, in 1963. The Vedanta Course provides an ideal opportunity for all those who want to learn, live, practice and share the Vedanta way of life. The entire Course for all selected candidates is sponsored completely by the Chinmaya Mission, which includes
boarding, lodging, study material and so on.

You will be happy to know that Chinmaya Mission has now announced the 19th Vedanta Course to commence on the auspicious Makara Sankranti day on 15 January 2024. The Mukhya Acharya for the Course is Pujya Swami Swaroopananda, the Global Head of Chinmaya Mission, and the Resident Acharya is Swami Advayananda.

What will the students learn?

Swami Chinmayananda envisioned a program of study for the Vedanta Course, with the twin objectives of developing both the head and the heart of the student. It is in tune with this objective, that the two-year, intensive Advaita Vedanta curriculum is standardized. Traditional in its teaching methodology, its exhaustive focus is on Prasthana-trayi – Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Brahmasutra the primary triad of the Hindu scriptures.

Language of learning: English and Sanskrit (will be taught from basics)


Spiritual seekers, regardless of their gender, nationality, upbringing and faith, are interviewed and carefully selected before being accepted to undergo this intensive residential training in Vedantic literature.
